Description

Arparagus Precoce d'Argenteuil. Early. Light green big spears with purplish scales. Asparagus beds produce for 20 or more years. Easy to grow; rust resistance. These are seeds; USDA will not allow import of root stock. Starting from seed  means it takes an additional year to get your bed productive. To start plants, sow seed in a small furrow; place seeds 1 inch deep; space rows 12 inches. Thin to 5 inches. The next year, move them to a permanent bed. Make sure you have prepared the area well (dug deep, made any soil amendments). 4 gram packet, approx. 100 seeds.

A beautiful and robust variety of Asparagus

This is an amazingly beautiful and robust variety of Asparagus. Growing from seed takes longer, but is the only way to establish a bed of this French treat. After three long years of waiting, I was finally able to lightly harvest and the taste is incredible. Add to that, the stalk color (dark purple) and size are truly special. Literally, most of the stalks are as big around as three or four stalks put together of other asparagus varieties. A real winner that is well worth the wait. Highly recommended.
